will hear from a constitutional law professor adam winkler. from the johns hopkins school of public health in baltimore. this is about 20 minutes. >> he is certainly one of the great emerging voices, insightful and influential of the nature of the meaning of the second amendment in the wake of the supreme court's decision, so thank you for joining me in this effort. i want to thank the organizers, everyone from the president down to staff that has organized a terrific and hopefully impact full conference. i am not going to talk with any power. as a law professor i do not like the focus on anyone but me. i am here to talk about the amendment to the constitution and what it says about major reform proposals being considered in the wake of the new town massacre. as you probably know, the second amendment provides a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. it is almost as if james madison just discovered this wonderful new thing, the comma, and wanted to put it in there as many times as possible, and is
the federal law they're much more common in the state's that don't do much of the gun shows and in the state's generating some publicity i heard that open air market that i've shown you pictures of have basically closed with the promoter saying you can't sell guns there so i went back and this time shooting the video from the united corps but indeed they have absolutely no gun sales but everybody has congregated about 150 feet up against the building. he was relocated about a 32nd flock. the other thing that happened, and jamie was kind enough to mention they were kind of winding down the office in the city of new york sent a team of private detectives out and we talked to cameras and we talked on how to try to avoid detection and talked about some gun shows we might want to go to. i had one guy walking around with a camera and these guys were pros. the allies and the years of engagement that said you can't talk to anybody but they were not so hampered and the shot a video and i'm going to show it to you. >> i'm going to let this speak for itself. >> i need to see your id. >> no background c
to discuss ways to prevent gun violence. later, bob goodlatte talks about his opposition to new gun laws. >> president obama launched his effort to reduce gun violence wednesday, calling for action and don't congress and signed in 23 consecutive quarters to deal with the issue. speaking before an audience that included the families of those killed in last month's newtown shooting, the president called for an assault weapons ban, better background checks, and more funding for police and mental health services. this is 25 minutes. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president and vice-president of the united states. >> please, please be seated. thank you. before -- before i begin today, let me say to the families of the innocence that died, our hearts go out to you and you incredible courage being here and the president and i will do everything in our power to honor the memory of your children and your wives with the work we take up here today. it's been 33 days since the nation's heart was broken by the horrific, senseless violence that took place at sandy hook elementary school. 20 -- 20 beauti
'a law, making it difficult for jews and christians to reside in a country where they once had. under this administration's watch, like i said, we throw our allies under the bus and the taliban has come back almost as strong as ever. not quite. some of my northern alliance friends told me in one of our visits over there that on national television last year taliban leader that this administration released for humanitarian purposes from gitmo didn't seem to be having health problems and was on national television and was making clear that the u.s. would be withdrawing in the next year or two and that when they did, the taliban would be back in charge as they were before. and so it was time to come beg forgiveness from the taliban and ask for their protection under shari'a law. and that doesn't sound like we're going to be in a whole lot better position after all the losses of life. all of the service members who have laid down their lives in afghanistan, continue to do that as we speak, because the commander in chief has them there without any real mission, laying down their lives. and
care law hosting a forum how journalism, ie, gasperino, should be covering the health care law. we report you must decide. uhh, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a travel agency. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. >> we're live from america's news headquarters, hi, i'm jamie colby. you know the controversial airport scanners that leave nothing to the imagination, they're being scrapped by the t st. a. the agency saying the scanners that use a low dose x-ray will be gone by june because the company that makes them can't fix the privacy issues, the government initially stepped up its use of the body scanners after a man snuck explosives on to a flight bound for detroit that happened on christmas day in 2009. and the crisis averted in washington over the debt ceiling standoff, at least for now. house republicans expect
. president obama urging congress to pass laws banning military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. u.s. officials confirm americans are among the hostage that militants took when they attacked a natural gas field in algeria. on this day now 1945 descended into german bunker months before his apparent suicide. at the time it was clear that germany was about to lose the war but instead of escaping to another country. hitler chose his bunker 55 feet below his headquarters in central berlin. that's where he would marry his long-time companion ava bron. after getting word the russians russians were fast approaching. hitler and his wife took cyanide pills and died. a dictator first went into hiding 68 years ago today i'm bill hemmer in for shepard smith. see you back here tomorrow night. here is bill. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> there will be pundits and politicians and central interest lobbists publicly warning of a tyrannical all out assault on liberty. >> bill: president obama changing america's gun landscape. is it constitutional? is it the r
. also, the government has an obligation to protect americans with laws that do not harm law abiding citizens. that means that any new gun laws must allow we, the people, to protect ourselves as the founding fathers mandated. talking points has no problem with background checks. or with gun registration. after all, we register our cars. but these things should be decided by the individual states, not the federal government. if the state like new york wants to ban assault rifles, fine. but wyoming may not want to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-
care law hosting a forum how back to cavuto on business. see new 30 minutes. >> well, doctor, doctor, give me the news, and a private efcacy group in support of the health care laws is now hosting a tax section with journalists on the best way to cover the president's health care law, offering what they're calling specialized education in health care reporting. charlie gasperino. >> i can't wait to sign up, dude. (laughter) >> isn't that weird and that anyone would sign up for, i'm sorry we got it wrong. >> any, any journalists that signs up for this should be thrown out of the industry immediately and taking-- i'm trying to take it seriously. it's so stupid it's unbelievable. i'm going to pass this to adam. >> adam, what-- (laughter) >> i'm going to try to explain. part of this they think there's bad report ong this because the reporters don't know what's in the law and they want toive them the straight skinny right from the folks who wrote it. what do you make of that? >> normally, on journalistic issues charlie and i are in lockstep. i disagree with you, if you're a reporter cov
are the solutions? well, federal action is yielding some progress. the brady law of 1994 has blocked the sale of firearms over 1.6 million felons, fugitives and other individuals. still, more is needed. proactive approaches include renewing the assault weapons ban, closing the gun show loophole and mandating installation of trigger locks and eliminating influxes of cheaply-made weapons. this doesn't infringe on anyone's right to bear arms in this nation, but we have to do things that are common sense. there are guns that have been outlawed in this nation's history. you cannot get a submachine gun or a sawed-off shotgun, why shouldn't assault weapons be added to that group? also, gun buy-back programs in my state have removed hundreds of guns from the streets and i am considering offering legislation to bring these programs to scale on the federal level to help stem the tide of violence. these measures would undoubtedly save lives. enough is enough. it is time to take action. thank you, madam chairwoman. and i yield back the balance of my time. ms. fudge: thank you so much. i thank the gentlem
will sign the measure into law. >>> and tonight, in further breaking news, as slow as house republicans were to act in response to hurricane sandy, tonight's other major news is about how fast new york state was able to move to respond to a different kind of disaster. tonight one month and one day after the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut, a town that is only about nine miles from the new york-connecticut border, tonight the state of new york has become the first state in the country since that tragedy to reform its gun laws. and it reformed its gun laws dramatically. as of tonight, as of tonight, new york has just enacted the toughest set of gun laws in the country. the state senate, which is run by a republican-dominated coalition passed the measure last night by a vote of 43-18. that was last night. then it was this afternoon the heavily democratic assembly voting. the margin in the assembly was 144-43. and then tonight, less than an hour after it won final passage in the legislature, governor andrew cuomo signed it, signed it into law. parts of it ta
before you can run. legitimate tors should work on a series of realistic incrementle laws that would rebuild competent and trust. this morning from the "new york times." and so the question this morning -- just what should the role be of government in solving america's problems. eisenhower's address referred to the military complex. since we have had ten presidents since he delivered those words from the white house just three days before john f. kennedy was sworn in. here is a portion from his farewell address. >> crisis there will continue to be. in meeting them whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a temptation to feel could become to all our difficulties. development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture. a dramatic expansion in research. these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel. but each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration, the need to maintain balance in and among national programs. balance between the private and the public economy,
, and the resulting discrepancy with federal law. i was wondering if you could please talk about what motivated you to write the letter and what you believe the correct approach might be. >> i have a real concern for states' rights. we vermonters like to the extent we possibly can to determine our own laws. i assume most other states do. i want -- i'm raising the question with the federal authorities. i don't want to prejudge what might be said in a hearing, but i am concerned that just because marijuana is illegal, possession of it, under federal law, that we are just going to ignore what states do and send law enforcement in there to enforce the federal law even though the states have a different view on it. we don't do it in most other areas, and so i'd like to have some clarification of that. i also must say, my own predilection is that i hate to see a great deal of law enforcement resources spent on things like the possession, use of marijuana when we have a -- murder case, armed robbery -- murder case, armed robbery cases, things like that that go unresolved. let's see what he they come up wi
signed into law a new measure expanding the ban on assault weapons in his state, limiting ammunition clips to 7 rounds and imposing a mental health screening for purchases of weapons. we will spend the rest of the hour on u.s. gun violence of the headlines. the house has approved a $50 billion package for victims of superstorm sandy after failing to pass the measure before the previous congressional term ended last month. republicans have come under wide criticism after delaying the vote forcing millions of sandy victims to continue waiting for federal aid. tuesday's legislation was approved over the objections of 80 republicans who demanded any spending on sandy relief be matched by an equal amount in cuts to government spending. french troops are preparing to engage in direct combat with rebels in mali after beginning the first ground offensive of the military intervention. france has launched air strikes in mali for the past six days in a bid to oust rebels that have held the country's north since march. french forces began heading north overnight, setting the stage for clashes on
shooting in 1991. john: people say tougher gun laws. views say the opposite. and you wrote a book about it. explain your reasoning. >> at that time you could not get a concealed carry permit. they did not exist. i would leave my gun in my car we were having lunch. a mad man drove his truck to the window and began executing people. i cannot tell you what it is like to be a fish in a girl waiting to be your turn. it just prevented us from being able to protect ourselves. john: leland yee you disagree? >> i used to work in the school as a psychologist. i don't know if any teacher or administrator that wants to carry a gun into a classroom or school. then why not supermarkets? hospitals? john: find. >> that is not the way we want to operate. in california we are about educating kids not to pack a gun and shoot them if somebody comes into your school. >> we're not talking about the children to carry weapons for the people who can already carry in the supermarkets. >> what is the lesson that we say to the kids? when you grow up to solve your problem carry a gun? that should note the life lesson.
with a statement today in which they say a number of things. but they also say that only honest law abiding gunowners will be affected if we, quote, if anyone is attacking firearms and ignoring children. that's not the solution to the crisis we face. of course their position has always been this. clearly that is going to be a very tough battle for the president. and it will rely on many democrats who are in red states and who have felt the full force of the bullying nra stand up and be counted. are they going to do that? >> i think that the issue remains a very open one in the minds of many of my colleagues, because they are hearing from their constituents that we really need to do something about gun violence. in fact, i heard that said to me personally again and again and again in the days that i was in newtown after this horrific tragedy, the days and the weeks that i spent huge amounts of time there. people in newtown, people in connecticut and across the country are saying we have to do something about gun violence. and let's remember, one of the president's proposals actually deals wi
to be officially sworn in by law on january 20th. they conducted small ceremonies for families and friends on sunday. the president held his in the blue room at the white house. >> i barack hussein obama do solemnly swear. >> michelle obama and daughters malia and sasha on his side he placed his hand on the family bible and was sworn in by chief justice john roberts. >> congratulations mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice. >> the president and vice president joe biden will take their oath of office again at a public ceremony before a crowd of hundreds of thousands that will gather at the u.s. capital when he delivers his inaugural address. he is to set forward his hope and vision for the country during his second term. >> what the inauguration remind us of is the roll we have as fellow citizens in promoting a common good even as we carry out our individual responsibilities. the sense that there is srg larger than ourselves that gives shape and mean to go our lives. >> he comes in enjoying a 52 percent approval rating right now. does not mean he will have smooth saling sailing fro
murder at sandy hook elementary school, and the president is expected to announce that he wants new laws to require universal background checks for anyone buying a gun in any state. he also wants to renew the assault weapons ban as well as a brand-new ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. >> the president has made clear that we all need to do more. and we all need to examine our consciences and acknowledge that we have not done enough to protect our children. if we had, some of the tragedies that we have seen in this country -- most recently in connecticut -- might not have happened. >> a new a.p. poll indicates a slight majority -- about six in ten americans -- now favor stricter gun laws. many more than that -- 84% -- support background checks for firearms transactions at gun shows. but when it comes to restricting high-capacity clips, some republican lawmakers are now warning a limit on one kind of big magazine just means more smaller magazines in the future. >> a ban on certain kind of magazines means more magazines. anyone who's trained at all, as i know from my time in th
amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes su
to govern gun purchases. president also says he wants a law to limit ammunition magazines to a maximum of ten rounds. and perhaps the most controversial here, the president is asking for a nationwide ban on military style rifles known as assault weapons. as an example of the resistance the president is certainly bound to face here, today the national rifle association released this video ad that drags the president's own daughters into the gun debate here. the president said today, he cannot fight this one alone. >> if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and sports men, if responsible gun owners, if americans of every background stand up and say enough, we suffered too much pain, and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will come. >> but what about the constitution? what about the second amendment? a lot of folks i know are asking and the president had an answer for that. >> as americans we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights to no man or government can take away from us. but we also have long recognize
that julia wrote me, she said, i know that laws have to be passed by congress, but i beg to you try very hard. julia, i will try very hard. >> reporter: also in the audience, parents of 7-year-old grace mcdonald who was killed in the shooting. >> clearly both sides are bracing for a fight. what is the reaction to the president's announcement? >> the republican party was sharply critical but party leaders like house speaker john boehner were more measured, that may reflect polls that show stronger support for gun control. republican national committee called mr. obama's proposals, quote, an executive power grab that may please his political base but will not solve the problems at hand. boehner spokesman said only, quote, house committees of jurisdiction will review the recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. not all democrats frankly are anxious for a gun control debate. harry reid says he won't ask members of the senate to vote on anything that can't pass the house. vice president biden says it's going to be a tough fight. >> i have no illusions what
-bye, andy. the o'reilly factor is on tonight. >> health reform law becomes legs in america. >> lower cost for families and for businesses and for the federal government. >> not true, mr. president. the government accountability office says not only will obama care cost the government a lot of money the enormous federal spending will eventually collapse the entire u.s. economy. this could be our last warning. lou dobbs will analyze. >> this is the president, i think, who has drunk the kool-aid. he is feeling right now high on his own power. is that true? is president obama becoming so rigid that he is unable to governor? carl rove has some thoughts. >> did you feel about bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> did you feel in any way that you were cheating? >> no. >> lance armstrong pretty much admitting he is a sociopath. is he really sorry for his doping and lying? gutfeld and mcguirk on that. >> bill: caution, you are to enter the no spin zone. the from south florida. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly reporting tonight from south florida. thanks for watching us. are we
by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. we are moving towards our ultimate goal of getting to a $4 trillion reduction. and there will be more deficit reduction when congress decides what to do about the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, though, we can't finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of
you inside the law enforcement command center working to keep him safe. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> this is cnn breaking news. >> let's get to the breaking news. a deadly terrorist attack on a gas field in eastern algeria near the libyan border. some of the more than 40 hostages seized have been released but a number of them are still being held, including americans. the state department confirms those americans are affiliated with the oil giant bp. let's bring in elise labott. the latest information you're getting is what? >> well, at first these assailants, these affiliated-al qaeda militants tried to storm a bus, these bp employees headed for an air field in nearby eastern algeria, that was not successful. then they stormed the compound of this living -- the living quarters of this air field and they took about 40 hostages. we understand that about seven americans -- we're not sure. it could be a little bit more, a little less -- are being held as well as britain, japan, norway, and ir labd. >> do we know who these americans are, what they were doi
, individual state laws do not effect whether or not this activity was reasonable under the constitution. >> but we have always, and correct me if i'm wrong, i think that we have always thought of fourth amendment reasonableness standards as being a national standard. suppose 40 states, you know, we can play the game, suppose 40 states had rules, had warrants and many of them had expedited procedures. that's still irrelevant? we don't look at that at a all? >> your honor, i think this court's decision in sampson v. california is instruct i. in that particular case the court approves suspicionless searches, and i think a vast majority of states disapproved of that particular law enforcement practice. but that does not bear on the issue of whether or not that violates the fourth amendment. >> of course, we don't know why they disapproved, and i guess your point is they may well have not permitted it because they were under what you would call the mistaken belief that it was unconstitutional? >> i suppose that is, that is a possibility, justice scalia. >> any issue in the conviction rates i
to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. >> well, we all want to save lives, don't we? so, here is something hopefully that the president can agree to. since he says he wants to save the lives of children, we can start by ending the national nightmare of the destruction of more than a milunborn children a year, who didn't die at the end of a madman's gun, but at the end of abortionists scalpel and scraper. it's bee

to increase the debt ceiling in order to pay its bills. he singled out republican law americas warning them he will not negotiate on the matter adding brinkmanship would be absurd and irresponsible. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize us to spend more, all it does is say that america will pay it's bills. we are not a dead beat nation. >> in a statement john fwhier says the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. republican senator mike lee of ue ah taw says the government needs put into place structural spending reform because simple spending cuts will no longer do the job. we are going to face another credit downgrade i fear because we will face it again without think being the way paushiwashi spends money. >> he is willing to work with republicans to reign in spending. he wants to conduct those talks separately from the gop to raise the debt ceiling. he hopes by doing so he can avert a first ever national default. >> kelly wright live in washington. thank you. >>> it is time to t
. >> thank you, bill. >>> last night new york became the favorite state in the nation to change its gun laws in the wake of last month's shooting mass keer in newtown, connecticut. democratic governor andrew cuomo signed into law a sweeping package of gun control reforms after it was overwhelmingly passed by the state assembly. >> i'm proud to be a new yorker because new york is doing something. because we are fighting back. >> the new law expands a ban on assault weapons and reduces the size of allowable gun magazines to seven rounds from ten. it also includes measures to limit access to firearms by the mentally ill and imposes stiffer penalties on those who use guns while committing a crime. >>> president obama will be offering a sweeping new gun legislation of his own. though any proposal to ban assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines is likely to face stiff opposition in congress. nbc's tracie potts has the details now from washington. what are some of the measures we're expecting the president to propose today? >> reporter: in addition to those bans which congress has to
? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being held. the terrorists say that the attack and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it r
law went into effect, when they were supposed to cover all of these things they hadn't had to cover before, and their premium increases, which few democrats saw coming,-under now etch -- are now etched in stone. >> that's because states like mine and california don't have any authority to actually do anything but review these rate increases. states that have reviewed those rate increases have actually forced those rates down, and because -- >> they don't. they don't. you might be right, might have the power and authority in private but let's say something like unite health care tries to push in a 20% increase and they get an 18% increase. still a big increase. i guess what i'm getting at, with the best of your intentions here, seems we're doing everything but addressing underlying spending when we say things like, spending isn't the problem. healthcare penning is. maybe that would do the trick. when we come up with the idea -- not you -- but the trillion dollar coin or 14th amendment to give the president the power to avoid that mess and just hike the ceiling himself. we go through
my two questions about that, i wonder, first of all, is this going to necessitate a change in the law about doctor/patient confidentiality? if a red flag, you know, is raised, are we going to need to change the law so the doctor is able to alert the authorities and act on the information? flip side of that is if that's the case and the doctor's empowered to do that, do you think that might cause young people to clam up and not be as forthcoming as we need them to be? >> great questions, steve. i think the answer to the first thing is, yes. you're seeing a proposal in colorado not getting enough attention on the mental health side and proposed a change in the legal standard where now doctors who previously were supposed to inform the authorities if there was some imminent risk to, you know, of harm to others, now will have a slightly, you know, a less stringent standard of substantial danger or substantial risk. in other words, something that is trying to encourage at the margin the medical profession or psychiatrist and psychologist to exercise judgment in a way to bring perhaps more
